Hi, I’m Galena.  Founder of the Virtual Assistant Clinic.

me_burnedI started my VA business three years ago after an accident involving me, and 18 wheeler and a long stretch of highway one snowy morning in upstate NY.  As I watched the 30 tons of steel and rubber jackknifing right in front of me (and hoped and prayed I wouldn’t wind up underneath), my life flashed in front of my eyes.  What would happen to my kids if I didn’t make it?  As a single mom, I knew there had to be a better way.  Spending hours a week driving back and forth to work just so I could pay for my house payment and car that I rarely got to enjoy?  Risking my life on dangerous roads in winter?  Getting glowing employee reviews only to be offered a 50 cent raise, barely keeping pace with inflation?  It all seemed pointless. I didn’t get a masters degree just to help build someone else’s business for 30K a year and a pat on the back!  I was adding a ton of value to the companies I was working for, but yet I still couldn’t make more than just enough to barely pay my bills.

  • Are you as tired of the daily grind as I was?

  • Have you been thinking and dreaming about owning your own business but not sure where to start?

  • Maybe you’ve even already set up a VA biz, but you’re not having any luck finding clients and making the amount of revenue you desire?



I created the Virtual Assistant Clinic because I think everyone should either be a VA or have one.  You too can take control of your life and set your own pay-rate.  You can determine what type of projects you want to take on and when and how to do the work – all while building a lifestyle where you can afford what you need without working 24-7!  Or even 9 to 5.  Since becoming a VA, I’ve taken 6 times the number of vacations and nearly tripled my income.  With my background in adult ed & training and my experience building my own biz, I can help you achieve the same results.

I’m passionate about helping other women get there because I’ve been in your shoes.  And I now know for sure that there IS a better way.  Because I’m doing it.   So what are you waiting for?
